Your drain is clogged, but you don’t want the expense of calling a Plumber. And you don’t want to use the toxic chemicals to do it yourself.  Here are a couple of fixes that might surprise you.


  • Try pouring two active dry yeast packets down the clogged drain with two cups hot water and let it sit.  The live cultures in the yeast will work on breaking up the gunk.
  • Try pouring a two-liter bottle of coke (not diet) down the clogged drain and let sit.
  • Try pouring 1 cup of baking soda down the clogged drain followed by 2-3 cups boiling water.  Follow that up with a cup of white vinegar.

Any one of these suggestions should do the trick.  Let it know how it worked for you!
